Porto Rico Coffee

sarahoc | Sep 23, 2003 07:04 PM

The other day I bought a pound of Costa Rican Organic French Roast beans from the Porto Rico on St. Marks. It is just about the worst tasting coffee I have ever brewed! Kind of bitter but weak and stale. I can't tell if it is just old or what.
I bought some of the best coffee I have ever had on a visit to Costa Rica, and I am just about out of those beans so I was hoping that Porto Rico would be able to approximate. No such luck.
Could the beans be that stale? Can anyone recommend a better coffee bean from Porto Rico, or another place that might have organic or fair trade costa rican (downtown)?
